We ended up staying at the pink hostel - no bother at all, just over the road. There's a picture of the pink panther on the wall. The facilities are all good, the beds are wooden bunk beds (great, much less squeaky than metal ones). They let us keep our things at the green hostel while we waited for our bus. The lockers are really large, loads of room for all of your stuff. The kitchen in the pink hostel only has two hobs, and the kitchen in the blue hostel is teeny, tiny! Nice place though.
Quite expensive, but so is the whole island (bring lots of dosh - especially if you want to go out at night). The staff are lovely and very keen to help/take you out. There's loads of beach gear you can borrow. Luka is great, he'll tell you the best places to go and how to get there. Follow the instructions on this site on how to get to his hostel, they're really good. Don't touch the cats, they're crazy wild things :P Try the figs, they're amazing - grown in Luka's neighbour's garden.
The ONLY member of staff didn't show up at the reception until 9:45am when she was meant to be there at 8am. This meant we missed out on part of our day trip because we were waiting around for her to show up, as we wanted to ask her some questions regarding transport. When she got there she was helpful, but only after moaning at us for not asking her these questions the night before. We then had to rush around Lake Plitvice, which ruined it for us really. Also, no one spoke to each other here.
Loved Tiger Tim's Place! Brilliant atmosphere. A small hostel with a great feel to the place. One of my favourite hostels. Tiger Tim is a great guy. Slightly difficult to find the hostel at first, but after that it's easy. Definitely recommend Tiger Tim's! A great place to meet people, with the option of going out every evening. Very chilled out place.

Wombats is an enormous hostel. So clean and the bathroom we had was huge. They could easily have squeezed double the number of beds in our room but they hadn't, making it nice and spacious. The keycard system was great for the rooms and the lockers, everything was very secure. The breakfast is expensive (unless you eat a lot), you can go elsewhere for less. The kitchen could do with an extra sink. But overall fantastic place, would recommend to anyone going to Budapest.

This is an apartment rather than a hostel - just to make that clear. We were greeted by the owner's son who was helpful and left us the keys. It's on the ground floor. The room has kitchen facilities, and a bathroom connected to it. Bratislava was the emptiest capital city I've ever been to, it's more of a town than a capital city. Not a great deal to do. The apartment was nice but I don't recommend the city.
Don't stay here. The common room is the only place where the wifi works, as a result no one speaks to anyone, everyone just sits on their phones/laptops. The wifi breaks every 10 mins too. We had ants in our room (though the lady did look very shocked when we told her this). The luggage is left in a pile next to reception, not securely stored at all, anyone could pick up your bag and walk off. There's only one key per room, which is a hassle with room mates. The kitchen is nice, on the up side.
Best atmosphere of any hostel! Fantastic to meet people and the staff are just as much a part of it as the travellers. The facilities aren't amazing and the wifi is a little temperamental, but don't let that put you off! There's always something going on, and they can organise any excursion for you. Seriously, it's a great place, my favourite hostel of a month long trip! You'll regret not staying here. Top tip: if you want breakfast, wake up and get it early, else it'll all be gone.
A very quiet hostel, good if you want to do your own thing, but there is no where to meet other people. The man who showed us to our room, took us all the way to our room (five floors up) and showed us how things worked which was nice, though he wasn't overly friendly. We had half a room as we were in the roof! Getting around without hitting your head on the ceiling/wooden beams was a challenge. I'm sure it would be fine on the lower floors.
This place is more like a hotel than a hostel. It's so nice! It's above a bar/club so there's a place to meet people although not great for chatting as it's quite loud. However, it hasn't got much of an atmosphere, it's probably just too big. However, it is beautifully clean and once you've worked out that it is a hostel and you haven't just walked into a club, it's okay. We couldn't hear the bar from our room either which was nice for sleeping. The luggage storage costs and the wifi is v.v.slow
It's a great place to stay, don't even think of going anywhere else. The beds are so comfy! The bar area is great for meeting fellow travellers in the evening. The staff are so friendly and helpful! They give real insider advice on where was best to see and eat, how much things cost etc. The wifi works in all the rooms and the facilities are super clean.
A nice enough hostel, but with no atmosphere at all. Not a great place to meet people, the common room was always empty.
